Default Re: Plugin to deal with WoW gold spammers

Eh, probably the same reason spam in general does. But it's actually nice to know that someone came out with a mod to start blocking some of it...

Actually, I'll mention one of the stupidest, and inane conversations I ended up getting from a complete random. Meh, I'd have stories to tell Gilthanas of what I kept hearing; but this one was so funny in a stupid way, one could almost fall out of their chair laughing.

WTF?

Oh, and mind you, among things some of these gold spammers do; someone in my former guild on my alt realm (it folded) had their account hacked into by one. Not sure how it happened, but Blizzard banned them for exploiting the WoW ecconomy from a time they were away, and couldn't have even logged into their account.

As it turned out, the gold spammer ended up getting a hold of/using their account, and they successfully appealed the ban after Blizzard was sufficiently convinced they were hacked by one of these people.
